EVERYONE CAN DO IT!
It's simple, and most likely you ALREADY do it. It's as easy as saying hello to a child or teen by name, asking what was the best part of their day, and encourage young people to voice their opinions.
Adults may not realize how important they can be in the lives of young people. The truth is that most young people are transformed by the seemingly small things adults do each day. These efforts may appear to be "no big deal"; but small actions and simple words have a tremendous payoff.
The more assets a young person has the more likely they are to avoid drugs, alcohol and risky behaviors.
